Innocent Heart – a new six-part Pashto drama for Afghanistan

The six-part drama serial, Innocent Heart, centres on Kabir, a 12-year-old boy naively manipulated by insurgents into planting an IED that kills three people, including his best friend and his brother-in-law. While the attack itself is visually and emotionally confronting, episodes leading to the tragic event portray a cast of fundamentally good, although sometimes deeply flawed individuals, striving for a better life. Drawn from different ages, genders, educational backgrounds and societal roles, they are all individually and devastatingly affected by the explosion, only heightening the senselessness of Kabir’s actions and the unforeseen sequential chain of events that follows.

The Put It Out There Picture team wrote and produced the series with implementing partner, Kaboora Productions with funding'Innocent Heart' bumper from USAID.

 

Trudi-Ann Tierney’s Debut Book, “Making Soapies in Kabul,” released by Allen & Unwin

Soapies cover

In March 2014 Trudi-Ann Tierney’s memoir “Making Soapies in Kabul,” was released in Australia and New Zealand.  The book documents the 3.5 years that Trudi and Muffy Potter spent in Afghanistan making television drama serials for local audiences.

Her crazy and dangerous 3.5 years in a war zone are revealed in delightfully dramatic detail in “Making Soapies in Kabul”.

Blanche Clark, Herald-Sun

One of the pleasures of the book is Tierney’s openness, her upfront manner and her willingness to laugh at herself…Nothing goes smoothly, but this only adds to the tale’s chaotic charm.
